Explore Your Clinical Identity

Nurture Your Unique Talents

At CCHC, we are investing in the next generation of Marriage and Family Therapists who are looking to change the world, one relationship at a time.

If you have caught the MFT bug, want to grow your clinical identity, and learn how to be successful in a private practice, then CCHC is the place to be.

We have created a dedicated Internship Program for those who are currently participating in a Ph.D program that is MFT-focused or who have already completed a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy.

Our aim is to support your strengths, explore your challenges, and nurture your specialty. 

The Program

Our Investment In You

A Program Designed To Inspire

As we get to know you, we support you to explore the approaches you resonate with, the clients you love, and your unique style in the therapy room.

We want you to have a clear clinical identity and feel great about what you have to offer clients.

The program includes clinical and reflective supervision, EFT supervision with a Certified EFT Supervisor, training, and case consultations with our in-house team of Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists so you can develop clinical excellence in the area of therapy that you are passionate about.

We also support you to be successful in a private practice setting. How to market your skills, develop relationships with referral sources, and have a strong online presence.

Once you have completed the Internship Program you have the option to remain at CCHC and take advantage of all the ways we support Residents and Licensed staff.
